Umfolozi women gather for business training

Umfolozi women gather for business training

BY: Colleen Dardagan 05 Feb 2020 Filed in: Canegrowers News

Under the auspices of the Shukela Training Centre, 12 women who deliver their cane to the Umfolozi Sugar Mill spent two days late last month on a Business Orientation course aimed at increasing profit margins through improved farming practices.

The training was also geared to assist the women to explore economic opportunities linked to product diversification and improved efficiencies through best farm practices.

The women's only group was formed recently with the specific aim of unifying their members through discussion on topics linked to challenges and possible solutions to those challenges.
